Страница 173 - When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me: Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
Страница 602 - Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him : I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Страница 537 - Their idols are silver and gold: the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not; They have hands, but they handle not; feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.
Страница 445 - Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me : For Thou art the God of my salvation ; On Thee do I wait all the day.
Страница 773 - It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob, And to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, That thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
Страница 283 - And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, And they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; And they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, And they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, Saith the Lord thy God.
Страница 648 - Put not your trust in princes, Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; In that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God...
Страница 33 - If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink ; for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
Страница 588 - Come, ye children, hearken unto me : I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good ? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good ; seek peace, and pursue it.
Страница 51 - My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee, so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding ; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures ; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
